Default European Assassin's Creed III CEs Revealed

Jason G wrote in to inform us of details of three confirmed European CE releases for Assassin's Creed III.

The Freedom Edition, includes Alex Ross' SteelBook (similar in design to the North American pre-order bonus), "George Washington's Notebook", a statue of "Connor" and some DLC content all wrapped up in a good sized decorative box.


The Join or Die Edition seems to be a slightly smaller package which replace the statue with a "Join or Die" medallion. It also lacks the SteelBook and some of the DLC Content.



Finally there will be a Special Edition which seems to come in a standard game case with alternative cover art and the inclusion of an "exclusive" piece of single player DLC Content "A Dangerous Secret". Those who complete this DLC will also unlock the "Flintlock Musket" weapon.

The Freedom Edition has an RRP ofÂ*£80 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and an RRP ofÂ*£60 for PC, the Join or Die Edition has an RRP of £65 for PS3 and Xbox 360 and an RRP of £50 for PC. All of these will be released on October 31st of this year. No word yet on any CE releases for North America, if past Assassin's Creed games are any indication the North American releases will be completely different than the European releases.

In Australia, EB Games have this as an exclusive -> https://www.ebgames.com.au/sale-prod...sins-Creed-III

For some reason in the back of my mind I just knew that a steelbook would be included in this CE.

Now I'll have two.

I'm hoping the PS3 gets a G2 size for the steelbook!

Question Preorder Group Buy (will probably need one from Europe and Australia)

Can an Australian member and a UK member (or several members for each region) setup a preorder group buy thread(s) for US and Canadian members? US members can do the same if we get a unique edition.

I'd be most grateful.

No, it definitely won't be available in North American retail store, Ubisoft have a bigger plan for that region You'll just have to wait a little longer to find out

Damn... How many collector's editions do you want me to own Ubi?! Someone direct me to a group buy thread!

Also, wish they included the medallion in the Freedom Edition. I wonder if the Join or Die box will be awesome. Else, I'll just eBay the medallion rather than getting both editions.
